They're not shocked. They just have too much integrity to out the environmentalists that polluted the water in yet another failed attempt to make the oil industry look greedy.

Mrtraveler01: And so you cite an article written by a producer of a pro-fracking movie that was heavily promoted by the fracking industry?


Personally, I've only watched one pro-frakking program:

Zafler: ReverendJynxed: Zafler: radarlove: Zafler: Turbo Cojones: The sister in question?

Oh, wow, I didn't know anyone had kept copies of that. That poor girls brother (step-brother?) really didn't know what he was doing.

I am unaware of this meme, what's the story?

Some farker posted a picture of his, I think, step-sister dressed as rainbow brite. I vaguely recall another picture of the same girl sitting topless at a keyboard. He regretted it.

Pics or it didn't happen.

Just for you, I spent 5 minutes tracking to down: NSFW



Wow, that looks like a Microsoft ergonomic keyboard.

Never heard of waitresses that write their own 'hate comment' on receipts either....

Money, what doesn't it do?



Well, it doesn't show up unannounced on my doorstep. Money, why can't you be more like annoying relatives?

toadist: If it was a few years ago when President Bush was in office then we could have said that Oil and Gas companies were bad.    Maybe declare any big oil to be exploiting and raping the land and water etc...


But if it's my political party in office, then there is no problem.    Stewards of the land.  It's all good.


You're so precious. Bless your heart.

Barry Lyndon's Annuity Cheque: MarkEC: Is it any wonder after there is drilling nearby that people get their water tested and when the report comes back that they have methane in it they blame the drilling?

Your tap water spontaneously combusting is the sort of thing you'd notice before drilling started, I think.


You're right, and they did.  They just didn't have a company with deep pockets to lay the blame on at the time, but now they do.

Thunderpipes: Peter von Nostrand: Thunderpipes: So Texas is the most transparent, and has no drilling related issues. The other states have allegations, but can't even tell why since the issues seem to be pretty ambiguous.

News at 11:00.

Yeah, just like they have no idea why all of a sudden there are earthquakes left and right in Texas now and getting stronger. Keep pretending the state that brags about few regulations and being pro-business is sweeping all of this under the rug. Azle, Texas has had 28 earthquakes since November 1st and the state just ignores it and pretends to not know anything

Hehehe, how is Obama kool-aid? Texas is growing, it is the place to be, because it is not a retarded moron left wing loony state that kicks business out and makes crap up.


Being a habitual offender of ignoring factual information doesn't make you right you know.

Being a blatant bigoted asshole doesn't make you right either FYI.

Much like how ammonia kills germs...adding some petroleum by products to the water dippy is actually healthier for you according to some studies. Otherwise you are a hypocrite if you clean your kitchen with windex and complain about this.

- A Texas spreadsheet contains more than 2,000 complaints, and 62 of those allege possible well-water contamination from oil and gas activity, said Ramona Nye, a spokeswoman for the Railroad Commission of Texas, which oversees drilling. Texas regulators haven't confirmed a single case of drilling-related water-well contamination in the past 10 years, she said.

Vector R: Some people who rely on well water near drilling operations have complained about pollution, but there's been considerable confusion over how widespread such problems are. For example, starting in 2011, the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection aggressively fought efforts by the AP and other news organizations to obtain information about complaints related to drilling. The department has argued in court filings that it does not count how many contamination "determination letters" it issues or track where they are kept in its files.

Conflict of interest much? Seriously, what do these people DO if they don't actively track pollution in the state?


That bribe money isn't going to spend itself.
